Rasmussen Poll: Large Majority of Americans Oppose Govt Health Care

A recent Rasmussen Reports poll finds that, despite the bull being peddled by President Obama and his liberal minions on television and at town halls across America, the American people get it: 57% oppose single-payer health care and only 32% support it.

Congressman to Check Papers of Town Hall Attenders

Rep. Gene Green (D-TX) will hold town hall meetings this August recess, but he says he will require his serfs, er, constituents to show their identification papers before they will be allowed an audience with His Lordship.

Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin spoke at the Midwest Rural Assembly in Sioux Falls yesterday, but this event didn’t seem to be on anyone’s radar. Herseth essentially said she doesn’t support current efforts to socialize health care in America. She should publicize her speaking engagements since she apparently seems to be on the side of the American people in this one. She could be a rare congress-person to be greeted with cheers instead of jeers.

Obama Town Hall: As Unscripted as a Broadway Production

President Obama’s health care town hall meeting yesterday was remarkably calm and quiet compared to ones held by other Democrats recently. Was the event tightly controlled and scripted? At least one registered Democrat thinks so.
